shocked to learn that chris stevens, our ambassador to libya, had been killed in an attack there, along with three other american diplomats, all murdered in what u.s. officials are now investigating as a possible terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11. while americans mourned, mr. romney saw a political opportunity. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. in my view, a disgraceful statement on the part of our administration to apologize for american values. >> sympathizing with them all, apologizing for our values? this is rough talk and ugly stuff and president obama responded. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here. governor romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later and as president, one of the things i've learned is that you can't do that, that it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the ramifications before you make them. >> do you think it was irresponsible? >

obama was apologizing for america in the wake of the tragedy in libya. but here's what happened as he began to address the subject. >> we're thinking about the families and those he left behind. >> why are you poll lit advertising libya? it's a question that many is beginning to ask the question and want answered. it's now been two days since his first disgraceful criticism of this country's response to the violent attacks that left four dead. today a launch checker was flat out wrong. here are the headlines. romney misstates facts, romney gets it backward. fact checker says no to romney. apology claims. let's be clear. governor romney claims the obama administration apologized for american values after u.s. embassies were attacked. this is not true. and the president agrees. >> it appears that governor romney doesn't have his facts right. >> criticism of the president in moments when americans are under attack is no time for politics and to have the facts wrong just compounds the wrong. so knowing this, why wouldn't he correct the record? why won't he admit the mistake? because it fi

scarying patriots are who lost their lives in libya this week. president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton honoring the lives of ambassador chris stevens, sean smith, gl glen doherty and tyrone woods. the president talked about their great sacrifice and made it clear they would never be forgotten. >> four americans, four patriots, they loved this country and they chose to serve it and served it well. they had a mission and they believed in it. they knew the danger and they accepted it. they didn't simply embrace the american ideal, they lived it. they embodied it. the courage, the hope, and, yes, the idealism, that fundamental american belief that we can leave this world a little better than before. that's who they were and that's who we are. and if we want to truly honor their memory, it's who we must always be. >> we must believe as these men did that we can lead this world a little better despite our grief. secretary of state clinton made it clear our mission is to honor these men and their legacy, united as americans. >> they help make the united states the greatest for

there drubbing the romney campaign for, first, the terrible misfire on libya when romney got out there and said something that was clearly wrong, acttacking obama when a consulate had been attacked and americans, including an ambassador, dead. republicans, leading republicans jumped all over him for that. that followed with this tape, this secretly recorded videotape of him saying absolutely vicious things about half the country. many republicans have jumped on him about that because it is truly awful. they don't want republicanism to be associated with that. so romney is not just hearing from democrats, he's hearing from republican s saying, for heaven's sakes, do something about this campaign because it's falling apart. some senate some republicans who are running from the senate are distancing themselves from romney, and, of course, ann romney has come out and vented her own frustration with the republicans who are criticizing romney. >> let me go to your first point, first, though, cynthia. secretary reich, "the washington post" reported in an article titled "some republicans in tight races

the president's fight in the middle class and last week on libya he approved the statement that someone should have wrote it. look, i think they've shaken up a little bit. the fact that he had he had gillespie was on that call, they are never going to believe it but there is probably some power shifting in that campaign. now, any campaign that has a secession of messages, i'd rather have one a-minus message and keep searching for another message and another message. >> ed gillespie is a former rnc chair. now, nia-malika, here is a quote, romney's associates are baffled that such a successful corporate leader has created a team with so few lines of authority and accountability so not only does it seem as if the message is muddled, it seems like the lines of accountability and authority in how the campaign is being run is muddled. >> that's right. there are apparently many different power centers in this campaign and i think the problem for mitt romney is he is running as a ceo. he's running on his management skills and if you look at this article it appears that there are lots of management pro

of places, whether you want to talk about syria or libya or all the places that the president has had to stand up, make decisions and stand behind those decisions and come out beautifully on most of them, i -- i think that romney is afraid that he can't do it. that's why he doesn't say anything about it. there's no other explanation except that he's afraid. he knows he ought to be talking about it. >> now, richard, romney's team, 17 of his 24 advisers served under the bush administration. and the reason that becomes relevant today is kurt eichenwald in the new york times came out with intelligence briefings in 2001. may 1st president bush was informed. june 22nd, attack could be imminent. june 29th, dramatic consequences from attack. july 1st, attack will occur soon. august 6th, bin laden determined to strike in u.s. these are way before september 11th in that year. so, there was a lot more warning to bush and his team than what we previously thought these m.o.s in the report -- the memos and reports are correct, yet some of the people from that team we don't know if these are the one
